Benefits for Educators

The job of a parent is to ensure their child is prepared to face the world around them, able to thrive and find success. Critically, all parents want their child to be a well-rounded, kind and good person. We share this vision of success, wanting the next generation to fulfil their potential

 

Many of the skills necessary for this to happen are absent from current educational systems, which lack the capabilities, time and resources to deliver content which specifically aims to support your child’s growth beyond academia. We have worked with global experts to help do exactly that, solving the underlying problems in order to ensure children can thrive.

Calls for change

OECD

“Education is no longer about teaching students something alone; it is more important to be teaching them to develop a reliable compass and the navigational tools to find their own way in a world that is increasingly complex, uncertain and volatile.”

UK Youth Parliament

“In 2018 over 130,674 young people voted having a curriculum for life as the most important issue for them. Young people are saying that the education system needs to prepare them for life after school and college!”

The Aspen Institute

“Integrating social and emotional development with academic instruction is foundational to the success of our young people, and therefore to the success of our education system and society at large.”

John Allan, CBI president

“It is disturbing to find that around half of young people feel their education has not prepared them for the world of work, at a time of great economic uncertainty and technological change. Teachers, schools and colleges deserve better support.”

UNESCO MGIEP

“With little idea about the jobs of the future, the key responsibility of the education system is to equip young people with the skills needed to manoeuvre this ever-changing landscape.”

Education & Employers UK

“Our research highlights that current Government policy, such as the narrower curriculum and increased content and exam-focus of GCSEs and A levels, are standing in the way of young people developing the skills necessary for working life.”

UNESCO

“Education needs a major transformation to meet the current challenges facing humanity and the planet. There is an urgent need for greater headway in education.”

Pearson

“One thing that is clear from the research is that the pace of change will continue to accelerate. Education systems developed 20-30 years ago will actually need to plan for a future 20-30 years away.”

British Council

“It is believed that as many as 65 per cent of today’s students will be employed in jobs that don’t yet exist, which means preparing our young people for the future world of work has never been more challenging. While qualifications and knowledge remain important, the students of today need the opportunity to grow into creative and critical citizens, ready to shape the future for themselves.”

CBI

“The importance of a broad and balanced education system that equips students with the character, knowledge, and skills needed to adapt to the changing nature of work is critical. This matters most for communities and people from difficult or less advantaged backgrounds and places.”
